Carn Wheelers Marc Heaney was competing in the National Track Championships at Sundrive Velodrome Dublin at the weekend.

Marc was competed in three races, the sprint, 500m standing start sprint and the scratch race. Marc achieved three second places and returning home with three National Silver Medals.

All Marc’s training this winter has definitely paid dividends.

Jody Evans who won bronze in the junior section of the Ulster 25 mile championships hosted by Bann Valley Road Club on Saturday in Clady, near Portglenone.

Jody has been doing well very well on the local TT scene and is definitely one to watch in the future.

On Thursday evening Carn Wheelers hosted the next round of the club road race league taking place on the Wood Road Circuit in Tobermore.

A total of 40 riders lined up for the four laps of the seven mile circuit on a perfect summers evening for racing where three groups set off, with Group 1 and 2 coming together just before the last lap, but the Scratch group was unable to bridge the gap.

All riders in attendance provided us with a fantastic race, big thanks also the marshals and lead car driver without whom the race would not take place.
